Ambitious yet sloppy, amateurish, home-movie-ish documentary wherein two young women with two video cameras set off cross-country to collect comments from common men and celebrities alike on the present shape of the American Dream. (Commentators include John Waters, Studs Terkel, Hunter Thompson, Tom Robbins, Robert Redford, Willie Nelson, Michael Stipe of R.E.M., Geraldine Ferraro, George McGovern, many more.) The level of discussion is sufficiently engaging, and the logistical details of setting up and nailing down the interviews are a sizable bonus. Directed by Shainee Gabel and Kristin Hahn. 1997.
